From the Publisher:
Basic kenjutsu and taijutsu forms of aikido -- sword movements and open-hand techniques -- are presented in full detail -- The first in a comprehensive three-volume series by aikido master Gaku Homma, the author of Aikido for Life (over 55,000 copies sold) This first volume covers basic sword movements (kenjutsu) and aikido open-hand techniques (taijutsu), beginning with training hall (dojo) etiquette, foundational body movements, and the art of falling (ukemi). Over 1,600 drawings and photographs show each stage of the foot and hand movements for dozens of sequences.In this remarkable interpretation of the foundation of Aikido technique, Gaku Homma focuses on the relationship between Japanese swordsmanship and open-hand movement, uniting historical tradition with the contemporary development of the art of Aikido. Although the study of Kenjutsu and Aikido have long been associated, this is the first book in which actual Aikido techniques are related to sequences used with the sword. Sixteen hundred frame-by-frame photos mirror the movement shared by both arts.
